It’s been a bit, but we’re getting ready to hit the road again in a few weeks! First of all, we’ll be playing a couple Ontario shows with our old friends Dead Leaf Echo from NYC in March. First off is an in-store at Dr. Disc in Hamilton, ON. That’ll be at 3pm on Saturday, March 1st. Immediately after that, we head to Toronto for a show that night at the legendary Smiling Buddha Bar. Anyone that comes to both shows will be treated to a shot of the cheapest Canadian Whisky the bar offers. The next day, we’re back to Hamilton for a show at The Casbah with Beliefs, Gasoline Gathers Hands Gathers Friends, and Mike Pawluk of this.is.underground.radio DJ-ing.
After that, we’ll be playing at the New Dodge Lounge as part of the new Hamtramck Music Festival bash. Joining us will be Rogue Satellites, Zombie Jesus and the Chocolate Sunshine Band, Palaces, and Oblisk.
Then, at the end of April, we head out again for a spate of Midwest shows kicking off Friday, April 25th at awesome Milwaukee Psych Fest at the Cactus Club. This will be our second year at MPF, and we’re seriously stoked to be playing with Echo Fest alumni Beast in the Field, the always awesome Plastic Crimewave Syndicate, and Tapebenders, who I’m not familiar with, but I bet will be great, too. Check this interview with MPF’s founder Andrew Shelp about this year’s festival.
Following Milwaukee Psych Fest, we’re headed down to Chicago for a show at Wally World with a new Plastic Crimewave project and a great band that we played with at last year’s Cincy Psych Fest, Killer Moon. Then it’s down to Ft. Wayne to hook up with the freaks in Heaven’s Gateway Drugs at the Brass Rail on April 27th.
There might be a couple more after that, we’re working on a really cool one that hopefully we can let folks know about soon.
